SECTION 10
Legislative intent
Education (EDN) CHAPTER 16, TITLE 1, ARTICLE 2
§ 10. Legislative intent. The legislature finds that students' ability
to learn and to meet high academic standards, and a school's ability to
educate its students, are compromised by incidents of discrimination or
harassment including bullying, taunting or intimidation. It is hereby
declared to be the policy of the state to afford all students in public
schools an environment free of discrimination and harassment. The
purpose of this article is to foster civility in public schools and to
prevent and prohibit conduct which is inconsistent with a school's
educational mission.
